Determine the angle \(x\)

### Solution

Starting by adding some lengths like it is shown in the next figure

Now, let’s take the triangles in the two next figures

For the next triangles

\[\tan10°=\frac{c}{a}\]

\[\tan x=\frac{c}{b}\]

\[\Rightarrow c=b\tan x=a\tan10°\] \[\Rightarrow\frac{a}{b}=\frac{\tan x}{\tan10°}\]

Using the two results above, we get

\[\Rightarrow x=\arctan\left(\frac{\tan50°}{\tan20°}\left(\tan10°\right)\right)=30°\]
